Looking after your mental health

Looking after your mental health

Despite the activities of the year, it is important that you don’t let it get you down and keep your spirits up. It sounds easier than done but a positive approach will help with your mental health. We have some tips below:


A healthy diet is important to keep your energy levels up. Hearty dishes such as soups and stews are filling and keep you warm.

They are also rich in vitamins and nutrients that will help your brain to function well and protect your ability to cope with daily life, but they’re also a great way to warm yourself up and take care of yourself when it’s cold and miserable outside.


Regular physical exercise improves our well-being, self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. You don’t need a gym membership or expensive equipment, you can do your exercises at home by following YouTube videos or books. Even a short burst of 10 minutes of brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positive mood.

Go for a walk

Fresh air does you a world of good. It is still great for clearing your mind and getting oxygen into your lungs and brain. Go for brisk walks in the morning, strolls in the afternoon during your lunchbreak or in the evening to wind down after work.


Relax at home with a book, podcast, or your favourite TV show. Close the curtains, make a cuppa and snuggle on your sofa and bed.

Be kind to yourself

Listen to your body. If you are feeling rundown, then it is important you take time out to rest.
